Bitten by the Bug Challenge! This one is called Summer Heat is for the Birds. I thought it might be nice to make a blue card and think cool, especially as we are expecting the hottest week of the year here in northern IL. I needed a card for my brother and sister-laws new house. So, I used a house from Fold Art Festival (my new favorite cart) and the circle is from George. I welded them in CCR and cut it in blue.
The white doily was inspired by all the beautiful doilies in Sophie. Sophie had no bird doily, so I actually used a bird from Sophie and George's circle in CCR again, to make my own doily. It really is easy to do, just create one bird roughly one 1/3 the size to fit in one quarter of the circle circumference. If you use this size, you should need 12 to go around the entire circle. So, divide 360 degrees by 12 you get 30. Now rotate for each new bird 30 degrees from the bird to it's left as you place them clockwise around the circle. So, the second bird rotates 30, the third bird 60 degrees. You need only create three birds, group and copy to create the next nine and then just weld. And here is a tip to make working with CCR easier, CCR does NOT seem to like welding grouped objects. So, to get my doily to weld properly, I had to ungroup the birds!
